Established to preserve the rich heritage of ancient Greece, Acropolis Museum brings together thousands of artifacts found at the world-famous ancient citadel located on a rocky outcrop above Athens. Opened in 2009 just a short walk from this heritage-listed archaeological site, the museum exhibits nearly 4,000 objects, including items formerly held in storage or displayed by foreign museums. The collection focuses on statues from the 5th century BCE, widely regarded as the finest examples of ancient artistic achievement. The museum building, a major tourist attraction in itself, features exhibit spaces designed to give each artifact a clear historical context. Finish your visit at the second-floor restaurant, which offers panoramic views of the city's historical hills.

It has all the sights with detailed, polite and nice defendants that can help you if you want something and the best of all (except the exhibits) the architecture of the museum! It has a glass floor where you see the below floor or other exhibits! The building if you see it from afar is perfectly designed! And I believe that this museum if it is not yet the most beautiful museum of the world can be done because it has everything you need a modern museum!
Visiting Athens without going to this museum is like going to paris and not visiting the eiffel tower! more »
This museum is just perfect. Very interesting and compelling architecture, not too big, very focused. Tells the story of the Acropolis with the display and the short film. You can enjoy the place for an hour or two and still have strengths to visit the real thing up the road. Very friendly for children, and the tickets line is not so terrible. Highly recommended for understanding the story of this amazing place.
The museum is incredible and there's no denying the fascinating ancient sculptors and the overwhelming amounts of history. I just feel more interactive and visual explanations off all the history would be very fitting and help the experience furthermore. I am so interested in learning about all the history and as a visual learner that would of further helped that! Overall definitely go and enjoy a coffee on the balcony
